Cows in the Meadow 2020
102cm x 92cm
Continuous lockdown drains the spirits even in springtime. People are robbed of predictability for their future lives. Yet time is now abundant and as a textile artist I felt the yearn to work on fabric in response to the cruelty of the indiscriminate coronavirus being felt across the world.
Walks through local meadows where the cows fed on buttercups successfully lifted my spirits.
